hollywood vampires

The Hollywood Vampires - Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp – will play four huge tour dates in the UK this June.

A super-group comprised of rock and Hollywood royalty, the Vampires offer fans a non-stop, energetic concert, including their original single, 'Bad As I Am', from their self-titled debut album which was released in 2015, plus renditions of some iconic rock favourites.

Joining The Hollywood Vampires on their UK tour will be some of their rock star friends and modern-day Vampires, who will be revealed soon.

What started with an intimate, star-studded show at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles for family and friends resulted in the Vampires wanting to play as much as possible, trekking across the globe during their short summer break before Joe, Alice, and Johnny had to return to their day jobs. That wildly successful summer tour in 2016 took them to more than twenty-three cities and seven countries - traversing the world from Verona to New York to Bucharest and headlining festivals such as Rock In Rio to more than 100,000 fans.

The story of the Hollywood Vampires began in the 1970s on the Sunset Strip at the Rainbow Bar & Grill's upstairs bar. It was a gathering place for the rock stars living in or passing through LA. Alice Cooper takes up the story:

"To join the club, one simply had to out drink all of the members. I would walk in on a typical night and John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon - who would usually be in a costume like a maid or a chauffeur - Bernie Taupin, and Mickey Dolenz would be there."

Cooper and good pal Johnny Depp got together and decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live again, but minus the drinking this time. Cooper and Depp were joined by long time mutual friend Joe Perry and the recording began: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires.

The Darkness and The Damned will support on all dates, which are:

16th June: Birmingham Genting Arena
17th June: Manchester Arena
19th June: Glasgow, The SSE Hydro
20th June: London, The SSE Arena, Wembley

Tickets have started to go on sale now and are available right here.
